of the things you learn when you breathe about alcoholics is that a child like bill clinton begins to feel like he has the responsibility of bringing feelings to that family, of redeeming it and creating on her honor where there is dishonor and so he basically sets out to be the person who will rescue him in the family. he is an incredible student at the front of his class. he becomes very honored -- active in boys nation. he gets nominated to go washington as the boys mitigation candidate for u.s. senate. goes to washington. he is already already six feet tall. he strides to the front of the line when they go to the white house is the president kennedy and when kennedy finishes his speech, bill clinton goes forward and gets his picture taken alongside of john kennedy. he is so proud, he is so proud and he is already dedicated to the idea that he's going to be the person is going to bring complete honor to the family. by the age of 17 he is already planning to be elected attorney general and then governor of arkansas and president of the united states. this is something which everyone had knows

[laughter] we had 12 years of paradise, that's in the chapter, post-oj pair dice describing wonderful things that happened. people are not walking on egg shells anymore with the list of words you just mentioned. people had to be worried back then you would innocently say a word that would be deemed racist. you would ruin your career. you would be -- you would be hated by all of human kind. that was over after oj. a lot of the change after oj was really very subtle, but it was a wonderful thing that happenedded for race relations in america. that faded, it happened a long time ago, and along comes obama, the most liberal candidate on a mar joy party ticket to seek the presidency in the nation's history so, you know, it's a two -for for liberals. they are call him president. we are all back on egg shells again. admittedly, not delicately on those egg shoals.

is bill clinton. his chief of staff was erskine bowles. i voted for that budget because i thought it was a good, bipartisan way to begin the discussion and get our spending under control. yes, i have the courage to stand up for leadership because that was something that they encouraged us not to vote for her, and it was something that was well thought out and was a good first attempt to sit down and discuss how we will get the balanced budget and spending under control. we had the white house from the senate, and they didn't pass the budget for two years. it's reprehensible. that's what i believe. maffei: two major candidates have a lot of wealthy friends. this is pushing an 8 million-dollar race now. a lot of this money has come from super pacs from outside groups, people that don't live here. other washington-based groups, six figures, the conservative 60 plus association, the league of conservation voters, it is running up way high. this one starts with you, if elected. won't you come in fact, be bold and to the people and organizations forgot to elected by paying for all of th

about president bill clinton, president george w. bush, why are those not fatal mistakes? >> i think they're at two things going on. one is what else is going on in the world of the time? john mccain made a comment about he was asked a question about what would he do in iran and someone said an air mail message and he went on saying singing bob bob ran. very few people remember that a lot of things were happening in the world at the time. nobody carried it on. i compare that to hillary clinton's statement about being under fire in bosnia. it was time after time after time until the media started to say well is this really chew and all of a sudden they pulled up a picture of her being greeted at the airport being greeted by a girl with a bunch of flowers and there is a general in the ground saying there was no fire and the obama people start to say you might want to look at her credibility on these things and it was so dramatic that we don't like people to lie to us. this is about as close as a presidential candidate obama looking at fellow democrats saying she lied to us. who else is
